The Civic in Auckland DOES show movies, though not every week. This theatre is a stunner and is the venue for the annual Movie Festival in Auckland, New Zealand. The atmosphere inside, with twinkling stars that replicate those of the Southern Sky creates a buzz in the audience before the movie – this place is one of the most loved landmarks in Auckland New Zealand. Watch, just 90 seconds before the curtain opens, for a shooting star that whisks through the left hand side of the sky. Most people miss it – but it always creates an extra little ooh-ahh of excitement that makes movie going here a complete treat. Seating 2300 and splendidly renovated, this is one of the great cinemas of the world.
